My day job is in television news but most nights and weekends you'll find me on the amateur bands. I got my Tech Plus license in 1992 and spent a lot of time on the local repeaters.
I upgraded to General in April 2011 and it opened a whole new world for me. I'm an HF fanatic! I live in a deed restricted area so I can't put up an antenna but that has not kept me off the bands. I use my Yaesu 875-D with a Buddipole and Outbacker Perth Plus mobile antenna to prowl the bands. I've made contacts all over Western and Eastern Europe, Central and South America and as far away as Kuwait. All with 100 watts and a portable antenna system.
I enjoy working the FM easy sats and I'm also a DSTAR fanatic. Give me a call, you're bound to hear me somewhere!
I have a Yaesu FT-857D, FT-1802M, FT-60R and a Wouxun KG-UV2D to work the satellites. I work DSTAR with my Icom ID-51 and DVAP.
When I'm not on the air I'm usually online.
I live in St. Petersburg and work in the newsroom at WFTS-TV, the ABC affiliate in Tampa, Florida.
I've been playing around on a new website, KB5TJI.
